What we've been up to in August - Mazda Signage | Stationery design
As ever, August has brought us another busy month with some new projects for new clients mixed in with work for our current clients.
Mazda Signage Project
We had a really exciting brief to install signage at their UK head quarters in Dartford, Kent. This wasn't just your standard logo signage though, they wanted to create an inspiring and encouraging atmosphere at work. We resized and installed a motivational words border, with matt black cut lettering and heart shaped artwork with gloss black acrylic and UV printed ink which made their words of wisdom really stand out. This also gave their office some personality and their employees some inspiration to strive to be the best. We also helped install their staff picture board with images of everyone that works there. The idea was to make staff members feel part of the community of the Mazda head quarters, encouraging them to work hard and therefore making them feel happy at work.
The Royal Arms Pub
This brief was all about creating some business cards to promote a Hereford based pub after new owners had taken over. The style of the business cards needed to mirror the old fashioned country feel of the pub. We designed and created business cards on a soft card rather than a white gloss, to give them an old appearance. The cards didn't need too much information on them, so we kept them simple with the address, opening times, contacts details and Facebook and Twitter handles to ensure people would engage with them online. The new owner was really pleased with them and thought they suited the feel of the pub that she was now trying to emulate.
Our co-owner and graphic designer, Andrew Drury got married on Saturday 27th August. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Drury! Not content with the mammoth task of organising a wedding, Andrew also decided to design and produce his own wedding stationery. He wanted to add a personal touch to his invites, table names and menu cards so he designed them with him and his fiancée in mind, creating simple but recognisable cartoon images of them both to sit at the top of the menu cards and in the colour matching the rest of the wedding. We think the stationery looks fantastic and is really personal to the Drurys and their wedding day. With many engagements inevitably due to happen with Christmas (eek!) approaching and Valentines not long after, if you know anyone, or perhaps it's you that may be looking for some personalised and stylish wedding stationary please get in touch and we can work closely with you to design a package which will perfectly suit you, your husband or wife to be and your day.
